if you go to drug/alcohol rehab you can transition to 3.1 housing which is free for six months and they'll help you get a job. it's all covered under medicaid, you don't need any income to do this, in fact no income is better. then after that you can go to a halfway house where rent is like less than $200 a month and they'll keep providing you with transportation to work n shit. in a year of doing this you can easily save up 20 grand since your expenses will be almost nonexistent. think about how much of a difference that money would make to you. all you gotta do is pretend to be an addict (and most of you probably wouldn't even be pretending)
if you got nothing better going for you, you should consider it. some places will even send a guy to pick you up from your house and take you there if you don't have a car


you do it and post results.


alright i will
see you in 8 months when my life is fixed


See you then!

Hi, I can speak on this because I have been through this process! I have my own studio apartment that I got by going thru a rehab program, a halfway house for a year after that until I got permanent subsidized housing. please note that your experience may differ greatly from mine as these programs vary from county to county as well as from state to state but you will have the best luck in wealthy liberal urban areas particularly on the west coast as the urban counties in those states have the best funded programs with the lowest barrier to entry. if you are willing to move locations & start somewhere new do some research but cities that homeless ppl flock to are a good place to start. there a ton of hacks & workarounds to getting prioritized for these programs as there are waiting lists everywhere, especially places that have good housing programs. appearing homeless is a good way to get priority, all you have to do is spend one night in a shelter and change your mailing address there. the shelter can then give you a letter stating proof of homelessness. (there are other way too) this will get you priority and get you in the door at a rehab program though you may still have to wait/try more than once. when I did this process I actually was homeless (sleeping in a van) and a heroin addict and I got a shit ton of info on how to make the system work to your benifit from other junkies and homeless ppl. you could try talking to some ppl in your area for tips, homeless ppl are the least often judgmental ppl you could possibly meet and will tell you all the tricks they know if you smoke some weed with them or buy em smth to eat. if you look down and out too and you can make some small talk they'll tell you for free and hell you might make a friend!

above all taking this route requires you to be able to extensively navigate bureaucracies at a high lvl of difficulty and to tolerate a ton of bullshit from everyone from caseworkers to roommates as you'll be shoved in a room with a stranger who's likely kicking hard drugs.

If you guys want I can keep going on how do it and tricks you can use to get the system to help you when it most certainly doesn't want to, just lmk and I'll write it up :)


OP here posting update
finished rehab a little over a week ago and am in the 3.1 house. still on blackout for a couple more weeks so i can't work yet, but there are lots of jobs available around here when i can. recently learned i can stay here up to a year, which more than doubles the amount of money i can save up for when i leave. life in the house is pretty good for the most part, although i do get depressed sometimes and i'm anxious to get to work already
i should clarify that i'm an actual alcoholic and i'm not just exploiting the system, this isn't even the first time i've been through rehab
thanks for sharing your experience anon, glad it worked out for you. i think things may be easier in my state than yours since you don't really have to deal with any bureaucracy or get proof of homelessness here, you just need medicaid and to complete the program, it's very easy

hell yeah congrats on going thru with it and getting sober too!!! that's a huge step foward!!
I'm the same person who posted about going thru the system before, that's awesome that it's so easy in your state! have you considered applying for section 8 or other housing programs? a lot of states fast track ppl in halfway houses and similar programs… it'll make that 20k go wayy farther.
good luck on your job search!!


thank you friend. little update, i've started work, just a shitty part-time retail job, but it's easy and low-stress and i get to put basically 100% of what i earn in savings so the shit pay doesn't matter much. probably won't apply for section 8 since dealing with social services is aggravating and i try to avoid it unless i truly need it. i got a gym membership and exercise every day, my health is the best it's been in years, life is good all around. once i get a couple more checks i should be able to extrapolate how much money i'll be able to leave this place with and start planning for my future. really can't stress enough how strongly i recommend this route to anyone here who has any kind of substance issue


So I got forced out of the NEET life after people committed identity fraud on me. Place has gone to the dogs. I did everything right. Did everything that was asked by welfare and I still got fucked over for it. Ultimately at the end of the day, that’s life. It wasn’t going to be pristine perfect forever. It’d be impossible to get a job here without ID, robotics have taken over the farming industry so no chance to backpack and make money there, tech has pretty much crushed any chance of getting work. No way would anyone here give me work after all the shit that’s happened. Unless it’s something incredibly degrading. I’m basically untouchable by jobs now. I’m guessing the only jobs I could work in are either mental health related or disability related, but no way would they let me near that. I guess that’s what happens when you get cancelled. Bunch of people didn’t like the fact I was NEET for so long, bunch of people didn’t like me being driven to suicidal ideations, so they fucked me over something fierce. I’m not even sure how I’m going to get out of this. People really hate me here so I’m guessing if I die it’ll be because of public opinion and my own stupidity.

I know what it’s like to be bullied because believe me I’ve copped a fuckload of it all my life. Everywhere I go. I wasn’t even aware of what’s happening until recently. So yeah, bunch of people scammed me took me for a ride and I got the shit kicked out of me. Like serious shit. Best to stay quiet, never socialise with anyone no matter how hard they make it. I’d go live the hermit life if I could but someone will find me. They always do nowadays. If you’re a nerd like a lot of us are, the world ain’t kind to you.
